In the center of Panaji India, situated is Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church, which was built in 1541 and is an aesthetic illustration of Portuguese baroque architecture. The grand white structure overlooks Church Square and the Municipal Gardens, an exemplary spot for locals and tourists alike. The eastern end of city one can find the Latin Quarter, with the Chapel of St. Sebastian and neighborhoods such as Fontainhas that remind of the colorful Portuguese tradition.
Outside Panaji are the favorite spots which include Miramar Beach and Dona Paula Beach the two of the most popular Indian beaches. They draw sun seekers from all over the world with their soft sand and palm trees. Old Goa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is only five miles from Panaji and should not be omitted.
To add up to interesting places in Panaji Goa vacations is Se Cathedral, the oldest church in all of Goa. Sunset cruises by the river are really favorite among visitors to India. A charming activity is to take the Ribandar ferry across the river to the islands that extend a calm break with extensive views of the city.
Indian festivals are popular in Goa and enliven Panaji Goa vacations. Some of the most popular can be termed as Carnival in February, Shigmotsav in March, and the Fontainhas Festival at the beginning of each year. These are the times when colorful marches fill the streets and thousands of people are overjoyed to become the part of the festivities.
Goa is also very famous for its superior cuisine. Numerous Goan chefs have gone on to royal European kitchens or grand cruise ships to share their skills with the rest of the world. Visitors on Panaji Goa vacations had better make use of the most popular dishes, comprising native fish or chicken Vindaloo curries, as well as choricao, a spicy sausage made of pickled dried pork.
Between March and May, Goa experiences a warm summer. Winter months between December and February are quite cozy, with temperatures remaining between 68 and 90 degrees. June and September, the monsoon season brings heavy rain and gusty winds to the area so it is an avoidable time to visit Goa India.
